One of the main objectives in Egyptian State strategic plan 2030 was to develop the health system and develop new methods of treatment and disease prevention. So the idea of our research project was to determine the effect of university furniture on the functional performance of the upper and back limbs and the measurement of pain ratio for all neck and lower back. The first topic in this project is the Analytical study of the compatibility of the design of human measurements for users of university educational furniture. This study aimed to analyze the compatibility of anthropometric design of educational furniture in the Faculty of Physical Therapy at Delta University. Fifty-eight students participated in this study from all sexes (36 males and 22 females) with age ranged from 18 to 21 years. Their body mass index ranged from 18.5 to 24.9 kg/ m2. They were divided into three groups (group I, group II and group III) based on the type of educational furniture be used. All subjects in three groups and the educational furniture were conducted for anthropometric measurements by using Tape measurement. The educational furniture dimensions and the user furniture dimensions were used to define the range in which each furniture dimensions is considered ergonomically appropriate. The results of this study represented significant incompatibility in the three types of the educational furniture with highly mismatching for the stool type (group III).We could conclude that there is incompatibility of anthropometric design of educational furniture used in the Faculty of Physical Therapy at Delta University.
